TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: The Marsh Berkeley Extends "A History of World War II: The D-Day Invasion to the Fall of Berlin"

Sep 06, 2019
Multi award-winning actor/playwright and Theatre Rhinoceros Artistic Director John Fisher’s acclaimed solo show "A History of World War II: The D-Day Invasion to the Fall of Berlin" will be extended at The Marsh Berkeley. Offering a compendium of facts about WWII from the bungled plot to assassinate Hitler (“A mess! Organized by a bunch of loser bureaucrats!”) to the big secret – how the Russians won the war for us (“They did all the work!”), this lauded production also surveys the best books on the topic, as well as the most attractive generals who fought the battles and the hottest actors who played them in the movies.

Described as “A one-man fireworks display. Contagious, edifying and as theatrical as a circus” and “Top-notch solo theater”, Fisher’s versatility as a writer, actor, and director is on display in this new work. Critics’ acclaim has been unanimous, with the show hailed as “unforgettable, unique, and hilarious.”

"A History of World War II: The D-Day Invasion to the Fall of Berlin" was developed at Theatre Rhinoceros, the world’s longest-running continuously producing professional queer theater, and the United Solo Festival in New York City, the world’s largest solo theatre festival.

"A History of World War II: The D-Day Invasion to the Fall of Berlin" will be extended through September 28, 2019 with performances 8:00pm Fridays and 8:30pm Saturdays at The Marsh Berkeley (2120 Allston Way), Berkeley, CA. For tickets or more information the public may visit www.themarsh.org or call The Marsh Box office at 415-282-3055 (open Monday through Friday, 1:00pm-4:00pm).
